Dearest reader,

To catch you up, we are still extremely exhausted. At least twice a day, we look at each other and say “I can’t believe we’re doing this with a child.” Though with passing day, something is changing and this place is starting to feel like a home.

The past week has been one of ordering things on Amazon, realising they can’t deliver because our registered address does not lead you to the actual residence, then going down to the logistics center to collect your orders, resolving with the staff where the house actually is. When the refrigerator and washing machine arrived at our house, it was pure joy.

Alas, a fleeting moment because there were more failed deliveries thereafter. I mean, there’s just no way we can go to all of the shipping carriers to show the google pin. So we gave up after three tries and just went to physical stores. Trying to explain the situation whenever they want to send someone over for inspection and installation. I am pretty sure the pocket translator has Sean’s voice stored in the system of “The house is hard to find. There are no landmarks. Can we send you a google pin instead?” Our tiny, tiny car during this time has been the most useful. From looking at catalogues while Luna naps to a makeshift couch because work still needs to be done in the house while we keep her safe.

I am happy to report that we are finally done with round 1 of essentials. The next round would be wood. For walls. And floors. I think that’s what most of you are here for. The actual renovation. Not nasty toilet stories or being eaten alive by mosquitoes, exhausted parents or failed deliveries. Silly me. So here’s a look at how we’ve attempted to make the space as cosy as possible.

We have since spent two nights here. In a home where there’s no working streetlights, no traffic or noise pollution. If you do hear a sound, assume animal before human. What adventure.
